Been there.

My theory is that rosies do not need brumation if the heated area in the cage is rather small compared to the rest of the cage. In other words, the male can cool down as he desires.

But yes, I have had rosies give birth after no brumation for the male or female. The cage did have a rather large cool area that ranged from low 60s to 70s all Winter and Spring, so the male could easily cool down when he needed. The female stayed mostly on the heat all Winter.

IMO, keeping a male and female together all Winter is more likely to result in offspring in the above conditions. I think that works better than the "put the male in the female's cage and see if they breed...).
